Bathié's story

Bathié is 40 years old. He is married and has a family. He has come to settle in the city with his family, whom he takes very good care of.

Bathié started working in retail business a long time ago. He has a shop, not far from the (microfinance) institution, and he spends his whole day there, from 7 o'clock in the morning until 11 o'clock at night.

He has more than 7 years of experience in retail business. He is requesting a loan of 300,000 francs which will be used to boost his business. This loan will allow him to make more profits, which will in turn help him to regularly save some money and to better provide for his family.

Bathié's dream is to become a wholesaler one day.
